What kind of improvements would you like to see in xx network nodes vs. previous nodes you have supported? ease of setup and less heavy on storage.
What are potential setbacks preventing you from operating an xx network node? none
What is the maximum upload bandwidth in megabits per second your node can provide? 500

Please estimate the cost of electricity in the geographic area where your BetaNet node will be running. 19 cents /kWh
On a monthly basis, how much time can you publicly commit to dedicating toward governance if you were selected as a BetaNet node operator?` 80
In what type of environment would this server be located? Personal Home
If your server is located in your personal home, please specify the name of your Internet Service Provider (ISP). tmobile
If your server is located in a Datacenter, please specify the name of the company hosting it. Nodes will not be allowed to run on Hetzner. If you do, you will not receive compensation.
Do you have past experience deploying hardware servers in a datacenter? No
Do you already own sufficient hardware to meet the published xx network BetaNet Node specifications (found here)? Geforce RTX 2070 Super (hope to get my hands on a 3060ti soon), ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming 4, 32 GB Corsair Vengeance LPX, Ryxen 5 3600x, Corsair Force Series MP600 1 TB, Dark Rock 4 cooler
Do you have hardware you would like to use but does not meet the stated BetaNet node specs? If so, please provide specs on that hardware below:
Why do you want to be a node? Because I'm convinced of the great potential and future it has and I want to be a part of that.
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Word of Mouth
Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
    Are you an active member of those communities? No
    What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? Quantum core resistance, meta data shredding >> so David Chaum's and the dev teams' implementation of visionary thinking.
    Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? Monero
    Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)?
    Do you have past experience managing communities or creating content to be distributed across social media? Please enter details for all with which you are comfortable or have experience:
      As part of growing the xx network community, are you willing to create content as part of operating an xx network BetaNet node? Examples would be node setup & on-boarding review vlog post, bi-weekly twitter update, medium review of on-going node operational process, etc. No
      Would you be interested in helping to lead the development of the next xx network community? No
      Why do you want to run a node in the xx network
      • To protect private personal communication around health and lifestyle issues from mass surveillance and abuse by centralized organizations
      • To promote quantum secure distributed systems
      • To earn xx coins
      • To contribute to a promising project
      What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? equality of ownership thus participation in it, so the more decentralized means a more fair distribution. This promotes the network for others to join and so expand rapidly.
      As best as you can given currently available information, please describe the value proposition of the xx network platform and how it differs from other current blockchain solutions. Privacy at protocol level combined with true scalability, quantum secure network and unique meta data shredding tech.
      Privacy by Default is a goal of the xx network Platform. In your opinion, why is Privacy by Default critical for the future of the internet? If it's not default, it's optional. When something is optional, the choices that are made stand out from other transactions/data. Example: Zcash with their 'shielded transaction' by choice, which breaks the privacy of the whole chain. With an increasing number and power of chain analysis companies and the threat of QC, privacy can only be at protocol level by default to ensure transactions are unidentifiable from each other.
      In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? If private keys can be derived from its public keys and/or a 51% attack can be executed, the network would be severely broken.
